GAUSA NAVARRO, MANUEL / SALAZAR RÜCKAUER, JAIME
This is a double reprint in a single volume of the books "Housing" and "Singular Housing", previously published separately, with the addition of several more recent projects. On the one hand, this book proposes a purposeful gaze on a number of recent housing proposals; on the other, it analyses the single-family dwelling from different and provocative points of view. The first part, more theoretical in intent, focuses on an exploration of those "project dynamics" that tend to generate new formal systems associated with the phenomenon of change taking place in the contemporary city. The second presents a set of projects and works considered paradigmatic of the contemporary approach to housing. In addition, three fundamental chapters - the house as an enclosure, the house as an artefact and the house as landscape - posit in the form of projects, quotes and images a whole series of new possibilities in the architecture of the personal habitat.
